Congratulations! I just heard that you're pregnant with twins.
Thanks. We're very excited, although I'm a little worried about a multiple birth.
谢谢 。我们兴奋极了，尽管我还是有点担心一胞多胎 。
I come from a long line of multiple births. My father is an identical twin and he had cousins who are fraternal twins.
我们家族就有生多胞胎的基因 。我爸爸是同卵双胞胎，他有个堂弟是异卵双胞胎 。
I see what you mean.
That's not even the half of it. My maternal grandmother gave birth to triplets and my aunt had quadruplets.
这还不算什么 。我的外婆生了三胞胎，我的姨妈生了四胞胎 。
Wow, multiple births certainly run in your family. What about your immediate family?
You're not going to believe this, but my mother had octuplets. I have seven brothers and sisters the same age.
不管你信不信，我妈妈生了八胞胎 。我有七个和我一样大的兄弟姐妹 。
And all of you survived?
Yup, every single one of us. We often joke that my mother didn't have babies. She had a litter!
是呀，每个人都活的好好的 。我们经常开玩笑说妈妈生的不是小孩，而是一窝小崽子 。
